Diminishing solar activity may bring new Ice Age by 2030 | Astronomy Now

It's Global War Ming!  Call Flash Gordon!  Drs. Zharkov and Zharkova are warning us that the sun is going to be resting in about 15 years and cause another Little Ice Age like in the late 1600s (which was actually due to volcanic activity).

Are you suspecting the doctors have benefitted from some corporate support? I know one popular refrain of climate denialists is that we actually need the carbon in the atmosphere to head off the next ice age, which is just around the corner! Honestly? I want them to be right. I'm scared for the future.

I was observing the similarity of doctors named Zharkov and Zharkova warning of environmental catastrophes from space in real life to a doctor named Zarkov warning of environmental catastrophes from a space villain named Ming waging global war in Flash Gordon science fiction stories.

I'm sorry. You left plenty of clues in hindsight. Rats have much smaller brains than coyotes.

It shows that Dr. Zharkova and Dr. Popova have neglected their reading of climate related literature. The question of the impact of a Maunder Minimum in the 21st century has been discussed in the climate related literature, already. One of the recent study's press release.
